Energy from Biomass

The combustion of corrosive biomass fuels such as straw, sugar cane leaves, cotton stalks, etc. requires substantial hands-on knowledge and experience. COWI has gained this over decades using similar fuels in the Danish energy sector. In addition to straw and similar fuels, we have substantial experience using other biomass including wood chips, wood pellets, etc.
